DS Video Connects Your TV to Your Media

Collectors of movies and music may keep all of their data on one large hard drive. A terabyte of data is great, although it doesn’t mean too much if you’re unable to consume it as well. NAS servers (Network-attached storage) are ways for you to connect your hard drive to your all the devices on your network. Then you can just put that drive in a corner and let it run without issue.

For those people who may be traveling, perhaps in a hotel room or maybe just not at home, you may be unable to access your NAS server. However, those users could instead use an NAS made by Synology. These let you connect remotely over an HTTP connection. This means you can stream a movie from your home to anywhere. Streaming content is made easier through an Android app that is now coming to Android TV.

They announced that the app is coming to both Android TV and Apple TV, displaying your list of movies in a very attractive user-interface.

WHAT’S NEW

.DS video is now available on Android TV

To get started, you need to first setup a Synology NAS. Then, you simply download the free app from Google Play, connect to your server, and you should be able to start watching your movies and TV shows.
